Stride Treglown goes Carbon Neutral

5 Jul 11 Stride Treglown architects are to invest £65,000 in installing over 100sq.m of photovoltaics on the roof and south facade of their new Cardiff Office to make it Carbon Neutral, believed to be the first privately funded office in the UK to do so.

This investment follows the building’s achievement as the first BREEAM Outstanding Office at design stage in the UK with the highest score achieved of 89.12% in October 2009. Already performing well with building emissions some 40% less than current Building Regulations with a target of reaching zero, the building incorporates  many energy saving features including a biomass boiler, high insulation standards, natural ventilation and a small array of photovoltaics.

This much larger array of photovoltaics will enable net carbon emissions resulting from energy consumed in the operation of their space heating /cooling, hot-water systems, ventilation and internal lighting to be zero or better.
